This book uniquely considers the limitations of applying large-scale educational measurement theory to classroom assessment and the adaptations necessary to make this transfer useful. Researchers, graduate students, industry professionals, and policymakers will come away with an essential understanding of how the classroom assessment context is essential to broadening contemporary educational measurement perspectives.

'Assessment and Learning is a useful and inspiring book for everyone concerned with the field of assessment and provides a comprehensible overview of the contemporary developments in the field of educational assessment, particularly assessment for learning'- Studies In Educational Evaluation `Assessment for learning has come to play a significant role in learning and teaching and the Assessment Reform Group has played a pivotal role in this change. In Assessment and Learning past and present members of the group explore the implications of this change for practice, policy and research, in a way that is insightful, accessible and challenging' - David Bartlett, President - The Association for Achievement and Improvement through Assessment (AAIA) The only book of its kind to provide a comprehensive overview of assessment used to support learning, Assessment and Learning makes this area accessible and understandable for a wide range of users. Rather than looking at assessment from a technical perspective, this book links it to the context in which it is most important: learning. This new and unique text is a major source of practice-based theory on assessment for learning, a formative assessment approach to support individual development and motivate learners. Key areas covered in the book include: - the practice of assessment for learning in the classroom and its power to enhance outcomes - developing and maintaining motivation for learning, drawing on the key messages from research - the role of assessment for learning in teachers’ professional learning and classroom practice - assessment and theories of learning, using up-to-date research to consider the reliability and validity of assessment and to debunk some of the myths about the reliability of assessments external to the classroom - assessment policies across the four countries of the UK and selected European countries, with a commentary on the assessment context in the US The book is a hugely important output from the internationally known Assessment Reform Group (ARG), which is influential in the field of assessment and education policy and practice in the UK, with related developments as far afield as Australia, Hong Kong, the US and Canada. The group carries out research in order to reach policy-makers in government, and also works closely with teachers and local authority staff. Assessment and Learning will prove a very valuable resource for a wide variety of people involved in teaching, learning and assessment whether as practitioners, researchers or policy-makers.

Carolyn Callahan, a leader in the field of gifted education, guides teachers toward answering these questions about their students and planning for quality classroom assessment. In addition, the book provides an overview of the most common and successful assessment methods, including formal and informal assessments, student self-assessments, and preassessment strategies for planning instruction.
